Electromed, Inc. Announces Fiscal 2020 Third Quarter Financial Results

-- 18.0% revenue growth from prior year period with net income of $0.7 million --

Electromed, Inc. ("Electromed" or the "Company") (NYSE American: ELMD), a leader in innovative airway clearance technologies, today announced financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2020 ("Q3 FY 2020").

Q3 FY 2020 Highlights

  • Net revenue increased 18.0% to $8.7 million from $7.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019 ("Q3 FY 2019").
  • Operating margin improved to 10.4% from 6.3% in Q3 FY 2019.
  • Net income rose 85.1% to $0.7 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, from $0.4 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, in Q3 FY 2019.
  • Cash balance as of March 31, 2020 was $9.9 million benefiting from $0.9 million in cash flow.

Kathleen Skarvan, President and Chief Executive Officer of Electromed, commented, "During this challenging time brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, our priority has been the safety and health of our employees. We have continued to manufacture product and implemented changes to our workplace in accordance with the guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. For our clinician and patient protection, we have transitioned our sales team to primarily virtual visits and are training patients virtually since COVID-19 pandemic shelter-in-place orders have prompted many clinics to close temporarily, limit their operating hours or conduct business virtually."

Ms. Skarvan continued, "Serving our patients, particularly at this time when healthcare systems may be overwhelmed by COVID-19 patients, to improve airway clearance, enhance respiratory function and reduce hospitalizations is critically important. We applaud the entire Electromed team for their unwavering commitment that ensured seamless manufacturing and delivery of SmartVest® Airway Clearance devices that resulted in outstanding revenue growth in both our homecare and institutional sales channels for the quarter. Operating margin improved by more than 400 basis points compared to the prior year period, notwithstanding increases in certain SG&A costs and more than doubling of R&D investment, reflecting our ongoing focus on cost containment."

"We continue to modify our processes and practices in an effort to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on our business so that we can continue to provide to our clinicians and their patients who need airway clearance therapy access to our SmartVest into the future. With our differentiated SmartVest airway clearance products, a large underpenetrated bronchiectasis market, and our strong balance sheet to support our future initiatives we believe we are positioned to continue delivering profitable growth as the nation emerges from this crisis."

Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Waiver

In March the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) modified requirements during this pandemic for prescribing respiratory related devices, of which SmartVest is included. Clinical indications and documentation typically required will not be enforced for respiratory related products including SmartVest (HFCWO (E0483), LCD L33785); Medicare patients only. The minimum documentation now requires a valid order and documentation of a respiratory related diagnosis. Face to face and in-person requirements for respiratory devices are being waived. We have taken additional actions to stay connected to our practitioners during this challenging time.

Q3 FY 2020 Review

Net revenue increased 18.0% to $8.7 million, from $7.4 million in Q3 FY 2019, primarily driven by higher home care revenue. Home care revenue rose 14.3% to $7.8 million from $6.9 million in Q3 FY 2019, primarily due to a higher average allowable based on payer mix and a greater percentage of referrals getting approval. Field sales employees totaled 44, of which 37 were direct sales, at the end of Q3 FY 2020, compared to 41 at the end of Q3 FY 2019, of which 35 were direct sales. Annualized home care revenue was $880,000 per direct field sales employee, exceeding target productivity range of $750,000 to $850,000. Institutional revenue increased 46.9% to $0.6 million from $0.4 million in Q3 FY 2019, primarily due to a higher average selling price per device and increase in volume of devices and garments sold. In Q1 FY 2020 the Company began selling to home medical equipment distributors who in turn sell the SmartVest System in the U.S. home care market. Revenue from home medical equipment distributors totaled $164,000 during Q3 FY 2020.

Gross profit increased 18.3% to $6.6 million, or 75.4% of net revenue, from $5.6 million, or 75.2% of net revenue, in Q3 FY 2019. The increase in gross profit resulted primarily from an increase in home care revenue.

Operating expenses, which include selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") as well as research and development ("R&D") expenses, totaled $5.7 million, or 65.0% of net revenue, compared with $5.1 million, or 69.0% of net revenue, in Q3 FY 2019. SG&A expenses increased by $349,000 to $5.3 million from $4.9 million in Q3 FY 2019. As a percentage of revenue, SG&A expenses improved to 60.5% compared to 66.7% in the same period in the prior year. R&D expenses increased to $392,000 from $171,000 in Q3 FY 2019, for the development of a next generation device.

Operating income totaled $0.9 million, compared to $0.5 million in Q3 FY 2019.

Net income before income taxes totaled $0.9 million compared to $0.5 million in Q3 FY 2019.

Net income equaled $0.7 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, compared to $0.4 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, in Q3 FY 2019. In Q3 FY 2020, income tax expense totaled $294,000, compared to $139,000 in the same period of the prior year.

Year-to-Date FY 2020 Summary

For the nine months ended March 31, 2020, net revenue grew 12.8% to $25.6 million, from $22.7 million in the same period of fiscal 2019. Gross margins were 76.6%, compared to 75.7% in the prior fiscal year period, while net income was approximately $2.9 million, or $0.33 per diluted share, compared to approximately $0.9 million, or $0.10 per diluted share, in the first nine months of fiscal 2019.
